A story of success

Pass Out Year: 2010
Current Organization: Reliance
Current Designation: Territory Manager

 

At present I work as Territory Manager in Reliance Life Insurance Company Ltd. and the areas in my jurisdiction are Dimapur and Manipur.

Right after my brother's death, I took up a job in DSLS in Mar 200, a state enterprise, as sales executive. After a couple of more jobs in the same company I joined as Financial Consultant in HDFC Life. I was recognised as the first Silver Club member of HDFC Life from the state. During those days I didn't have any problem and I was promoted year after year with higher remuneration. I soon became Manager in charge of DSLS (Reliance Telecom). In June of 2008, I was offered a Job in Birla Sun Life Insurance Company Limited as Agency Manager at the age of 23, despite the eligibility age being 26 years. Thankfully, I was very successful at the early stages but after a few years I found some loopholes in my planning and strategies. I strongly felt the need of a Management degree. So I left my job in 2009 and took up the MBA course from SMU.

I am really grateful to all the teaching staff at SMU. Their teaching techniques were fantastic and I was eager to put to use all that I had learnt at the university. I took up a job in Reliance Life Insurance Co. Ltd. as a Sales officer. And it worked! Within nine months I was promoted to Senior ISO and again after nine months I received the good news from my boss that I would be sent to Bangkok.
